David Clark Company recently announced a new line of rugged headsets with low energy Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connectivity.
The Aurora Class HBT Series include marine grade hardware, comfort gel ear seals, and a USB charging cable. All HBT models provide 23dB NRR (Noise Reduction Rating) for excellent hearing protection.
There are 3 different styles and all carry a 12 month warranty. The HBT-30 has a headband for wearing over-the-head and the HBT-40 has a neckband for use with hardhats. Both utilize a M-55 noise-cancelling electret microphone.
The HBT-60 is also a behind-the-head style and is identical to the HBT-40 except it lacks the microphone. This is a listen-only headset for users who only need one-way communications.
Compatible With Smartphones and Bluetooth Radio Adapters
The HBT series headsets are designed to work with any standard Bluetooth smart device or 2-way radio adapter. HBT headsets use a rechargeable battery that provides up to 80 hours of continuous listening or 140 hours on standby. Range is up to 30 feet from the two-way radio adapter or smartphone.
All HBT headsets are RoHS Compliant, FCC Approved, and made in the USA.

Popular Low Cost BPR Now Available With 2 Watts Output
Motorola introduced a new lower cost VHF or UHF analog portable radio with 2 watts output. The MAG ONE BPR20 uses the same batteries, chargers, and audio accessories as the popular BPR40.
Designed for on-site communications, it can be used with or without a repeater. More rugged than a Talkabout, it uses business radio frequencies for better performance. We recommend the UHF BPR20 for inside buildings and the VHF models if the radios are used primarily outdoors.

OTTO recently introduced a new patent-pending noise-cancelling remote speaker-microphone compatible with most popular 2-way radios. The Revo NC2 rugged microphone has a submersible rating of IP68 but still has a receive-only audio jack.
The V2-R2ER1212 is compatible with the Harris P5300, P5400, P5500, and P7300, XG-75, and XG-25. There are two Kenwood choices – the V2-R2KB5112 with a multi-pin connector for NX200 or the V2-R2KA5112 for ProTalk and models with a 2-pin connector.
OTTO also released the V2-R2MF5112 microphone for Motorola APX and MOTOTRBO XPR 6000/7000 series models. There is also the V2-R2MG5112 microphone for CP Series, PR400, BPR40, and others with a 2 pin jack.
Working in a high noise environment requires hearing protection. The NC2 has a 2.5mm or 3.5mm audio jack for a receive-only earpiece or dual muff headset. We recommend the 3M Peltor HT Series Listen-Only models available in headband, neckband, or hardhat mount.
OTTO is a leading manufacturer of two-way radio accessories located in Carpenterville, IL. Founded in 1961, the company has a reputation for high quality public-safety grade audio accessories. Magnum Electronics, Inc is an authorized dealer.

Vertex Standard introduced a low cost IP gateway to extend DMR digital 2-way radio coverage using your existing LAN or an internet connection. The EVX-Link interfaces with a EVX-5300 or EVX-5400 digital radio.
The connected radio can be programmed as a base or control station for use with a repeater. You can also connect locations that don’t use the same frequency band. A branch office that uses VHF 2-way EVX-531 portables can have radio-to-radio communications with a remote location using UHF EVX-539 radios.
EVX-Link supports most digital features including group call, all call, private call, PTT ID, call alert, emergency calls, remote monitor, and text messaging. Analog communications is not supported through EVX-Link and the connected radio’s microphone and display are not functional.
Improve Mobile Worker Productivity While Increasing Employee Safety
The EVX-Link is an easy way to connect all schools in a district, add remote campus locations, or increase plant interoperability. It provides seamless wireless radio communications across all branch offices using your existing LAN. Mobile workers will now have instant voice communications capability across the county, state, or world.
